Long time since I updated this. Basically Chapter 2 did occur and it was a great success, I played Xenkans and was utterly slaughtered in 5 turns, while I had a friend play the Praetorians.

As for the Chapter 2, I took some pictures, but didn't take notes on the events so couldn't do a full write-up, so here are a few pictures and what i can remember.

Image

Image

The battlefield was a 'T' shaped road with a building on one side.

Image

Dreddy was fielded with the 'Holy shit peach-lovers won't be happy' option.

Image

Image

Stuff died

Image

Jump infantry to the rescue!

Image

Sniping with a plasma shotgun proves an effective technique.

Image

To quote J. Clarkson "I am the god of HELLFIRE!!!"

Image

When this happened I couldn't stop shouting FUCK long enough to hold the camera straight.

Image

OK, maybe time to re-write jump-infantry rules.....

Image

That can only end hilariously...

Image

Yep.

Image

Dead piles make me happy, even though mines the biggest.

Also there was use of the new scout rules, but I forgot to take picture of it, overall stuff was killed in various funny ways, dreddy died an honorable death with his last memory being the blood-splatter from a praetorian marine that got a little too close to his OTC.

I don't know when I'll get chapter 3 done, but I'll definitely get a much better battle report done with it. I'm expanding both armies so the next battle can be a little grander, and I'm changing rules for the Xekans to make them more Killy. I do know I'm going to have this next battle relate more to the current Immortal war.

Looks like a great battle! The peach on a cross attachment for Dreddy seems very brikwarsy. Looking forward to seeing battle 3.

Backstory time

Code: Select all
The Xenkan Invasion of Mai XI was stopped, however It turned out that the attack was only one of 5, two of which resulted in the succesful extraction of Praetorian computer cores The Xenkans however still pulled back to Chaotic space where they could not be followed.

Great job man! Good senario and pics. nice job.
I hate weddings. Old people would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped when I started going up to them at funerals and poking them, saying, "You're next"
